Development potential lowers for tropical wave in central Atlantic

Published: Updated:

The Weather Authority continues to monitor a tropical wave about 500 miles east of the Windward Islands. The disturbance has become less organized today.

As previously mentioned, wind shear is beginning to increase in the main development region. For this reason, minimal development is possible over the next few days as the wind shear increases even more.

Right now, the National Hurricane Center is giving it a 20% chance of development.

As for the rest of your Tuesday evening, the weather looks perfect with mostly clear skies, and a dry northerly breeze. Temperatures tonight look to fall into the 70s along the coast, but many inland spots will reach the 60s!

Wednesday will feature a very similar forecast before our humidity levels do increase a bit on Thursday. This is all ahead of a front, which is expected to push through the state of Florida on Friday.

This will bring the return of scattered showers and storms due to deeper tropical moisture. Enjoy the more pleasant weather the next two days!
